In the early 1930's, Lord Portman gave the Scout Association an acre of his Deep Park and his brother, the Honourable Claude Portman gave the Scouts their large HQ building.
We are one of very few Scout Groups who can proudly state that Lord Baden Powell has walked on our boards!
Over the years a toilet and shower block were added. The Millenium project saw a complete refurbishment of inside and out with the addition of central heating, insulated ceilings, complete rewiring and extended parking. Most recently (2017) the kitchen has been completely updated and modernised and all the fire doors replaced.
The HQ is a beautuful large site tucked away off Eagle House Gardens.
It has ample free parking, large green field and large wooden buiding.
Inside is a newly refurbished kitchen, 2 large hall that can be separated by a moving partition.
Would you like to hire the HQ for your next birthday party, celebration, training?
With income from hall bookings we can continue to improve the facilities for all hirers and scouters that use the site
